Went on a long trip with mom...

April 5th 2014 1:33 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

I traveled up to just south of Harrison, AR a few weeks ago with mom so she could get her CB fixed and installed in the car. Was very interesting trip too. Mom went into a restaurant to get something to eat and I laid down under the table at mom's feet like I should. The waitress asked mom what kind of dog I was. Mom and the waitress got into a talk about the task I do and what I was for. The waitress also had PTSD as well like mom but in her own way.

After Mom finished eating she went over to the CB shop and I got to meet the CB tech. I found out he was an animal lover. So mom and him talked a lot about me. He asked mom if it was okay to pet me and she said Yes and he petted me. Once he did that I was okay and relaxed and laid down on the floor and took a nap since I knew mom would be okay.

After mom's CB was installed we headed home. I slept all the way home pretty much until I felt the car coming to a stop. Then I would sit up and see where we were. Once I felt mom turn off the Highway I knew we were almost home and sat up looking out the window. I was so happy to be home and with my doggy buddies again. Was a really interesting trip.


Went to the AETN telethon with mom...

Went with mom to the AETN telethon. I know I wasn't able to be seen because I was under the table but at least Mom was okay and didn't have an attack. Mom even got a few comments about me as well and how pretty I was by the celebrity who came to visit the studio who they were doing the tickets for their show in Stuttgart, AR. He said I was very pretty and had an Irish Accent. Mom and I posed for a picture with him as well as the group that came to help out at the telethon too.


Wintry weather....

I understand we have four seasons but this ice we got is really hard to walk on for me while it's a piece of cake for Izabella to run across the yard with no problems. Kind of wish we didn't have it at this time of the year to be honest. Mommy understands and gives me some love for doing my duties and lets me back inside when I am done. Just kind of hard when you are 14 years old.


Went with mom the AETN banquet

I went with mom to the AETN thank you banquet. I stayed under the table at her feet or under her chair out of the way of everyone. There was a lot of people there too. I watched and made sure mom was okay the entire time. A couple times I had to get her attention to focus on me and pet me to help her get an attack under control and made sure she was okay before I could relax again. Other than that a lot of people commented to mom about me.


Went to Camp Choctaw

I got to go for a long ride to Camp Choctaw today with Izzy. Not my first long ride but it was for her. Bless her heart she threw up just as we got to the end of the road from the house. She's still not used to riding in the car. So I laid down next to her and let her cuddle up to me so she would know she isn't alone. She cuddled up against me and went to sleep for most of the rid there. Mom and Grammy stopped at Sonic on the way there and got them something to eat and drink. When we got to the camp I got to see Miss Mary and get a couple of treats from her as well as Izzy. I love it when she pets me. I enjoyed getting to be a dog for a day and not in my vest. I still laid down next to mom though and stayed by her at the campground while Izzy went and explored. We got home around 2-3 pm and now I am relaxing. Was kind of fun to go someplace and be a dog and not on duty.


Interesting 4th of July so far...

Well it is quiet here now but it won't be tonight when people start shooting off their fireworks. The sound of them doesn't seem to bother me but it sure does bother Izabella. She will pace the room, pant and go lay down right next to mom when they are being shot off.

Last week mom's niece was over here and Izzy got someone to chase in the yard and play with her. Poor Aquilla kind of got left out. So Emma took turns playing fetch with the two of them. So it was interesting to watch. I sure do enjoy the breaks I get from the little one by going places with mom in uniform. Nice and quiet and I get left alone and nobody trying to chew on my ears.


Was interesting week last week...

Last week mom had her nieces come over. I enjoyed that because I got all this loving from the both of them when they were here. Izzy got jealous and barked at them when they were petting me. She got some attention though. They played fetch with her in the back yard which gave me some time to myself.

Mom took me to AETN where she answered phones for their telethon that they hold a couple times a year to raise money for the TV station. I was fine with that and just laid down on my side and went to sleep as she answered the phone and took donations. MOm took me out so I could do my duties and came back in during a break. I even got some pizza crust when mom ate some pizza that the station got for us to eat.

After the telethon mom and I got I the truck and headed home. Mom's friends in the Strange Birds of Little Rock were really nice and I enjoyed it when they petted me. I always have a good time when I am around them. Can't wait to see them again if mom can go to the next get together.


Went to Toad Suck Daze today with mom....

Well today I went to Toad Suck Daze a local festival held here every year. I went with mom last year and did okay. This year Grammy went with us and more people were wanting to pet me and such. So mom is going to have to look into getting a patch that says no petting at work or something of that sort. I know it's nice to get petted and such but grammy looked like she wasn't too happy with mommy letting people do that. So hopefully mom will be able to get a patch that says to not pet me I am working and that should take care of the problem.....I hope.

Mom found me a mat at a booth that had stuff for dogs. Mom was reaching in her purse to get more money to cover the taxes and the lady who ran the booth was sweet enough that she told mom the twenty would be enough and she would cover the rest after she asked mom if the mat was for me and when she realized I was a service dog. That was kind of neat. Now I have my own mat to lay on when Mom takes me places. It's a nice red corderoy like on one side and then a red with darker leaf pattern on the other side.

Seems like Izzy has been cuddling up to me lately. Not too sure with that. I wouldn't mind it but she tosses and turns like mommy does. No wonder those two don't phase each other when Izzy sleeps on the bed. All I can say is I am glad she does give me more room on the floor. So it was really interesting today when everyone was asking Mom if they could pet me.


Been really interesting since Izzy came into the family...

Well not too sure when it comes to playing with the little one but I let her know when she has gone too far. Most of the time though I just turn and walk away in the other direction away from her. Champ seems to enjoy her playing with him and following him though. Which is good because sometime she can get on a dog's nerves. Thank goodness mom was willing to play with her and get her to run around the house and wear herself out. At least when I go out with mom and work I can get me some time away from her and to myself. Seems like Izzy seems to like the bed at the foot of mom's bed. That's fine with me cause I hardly sleep there. Glad mom keeps her on the bed at night so I get my space as well as some love from mom after Izzy is sound asleep. So been kind of rough getting used to the new addition to the family since Friday.


Went to an appointment and more....

Went with mommy to her doctor appointment. I went under the chair she was sitting in so that I was out of the way. Went with her back to the room for her appointment and layed down in the corner. After the appointment mommy and I went to the police station. Mommy was seeing about offering to educate the officers on the rights of a service dog person and such so that the policemen knew what they could and couldn't do when an instance happened to where they got called to and someone with a service dog was there. Then we came home after that. Wasn't too sure of the doctor's office though. I had never been to this one so it was all new to me. But I made my mommy proud of me because she kept praising me for it.
